How Long Does It Take To Install A New Roof?

Hello everyone and welcome to our 5th Affordable Roofing FAQ segment. Again, thank you for sending us your questions about roofing. We will do our best to answer all of them. So, for today’s FAQ: How long does it take to install a new roof?

Generally, the roof of an average house in Tampa (about 3,000 square feet) can be replaced in one to two days. But there are other factors that we need to consider. In some extreme cases, the entire process can take a week.

Here are some of the factors that can prolong the roof installation process:


  • Complexity

The complexity of your roof is one of the biggest factors affecting the roof’s installation process. The roof’s cut, slope, number of facets, angles, hips, valleys, and pitch all factor into the complexity of the job. Take note that these things can also affect the overall cost of your new roof.


  • Accessibility

Not all roofs are designed equally. Sometimes, there are obstacles that complicate the job.

So, what makes a roof difficult to access?

  • Landscaping or bushes around the house
  • Fencing
  • No paved surface up to the home or limited roof access points

A reputable roofer will always follow safety protocols to protect your property and prevent injuries, even if this means the job takes a little longer to complete.


  • Weather on the Day of Installation or Replacement

It can be difficult for roofers to accomplish a job on time if the weather is bad. So set realistic expectations in case of unforeseen weather.


So, there you have it!
